Nearly everyone has heard very young children making sounds and trying to imitate spoken words, from their first coos and gurgles to milestone words like "Mama" or "Papa."

In these earliest experiments with speaking and listening, we recognize that children are born with the ability to perceive and produce sounds that will eventually become words and then sentences.

This is the beginning of an emerging childhood vocabulary, an important foundation for language development and early reading skills.
